A huge Country and Rockabilly fan, comedian Cy Amundson would have loved a career in the music business. “My dad is incredibly musically talented and my brother Greg is a Country musician and has an outrageous voice,” he says. “But I got nothing.”
Still, he respects when performers tackle art forms outside the ones they are generally known for.
“I think it’s so funny when people shit on actors who become musicians, [even though] they are generally terrible,” Amundson says, citing Kevin Costner as a popular target. “He’s one of my favorite actors. He has his band (Modern West) and they’re not anything great, but musically, for being the most talented actor in the world and being decent at music, that’s amazing.” He notes the reverse isn’t always the case.
